Wow, what a great lemonade LL. I love the addition of the cranberry juice. It was just the right amount. It was a perfectly balanced lemonade. Refreshing, tart, tangy and sweet. Made for Think Pink 2015.

I made a small serving of this tonight with 2 tbsp. sugar, 9 tbsp. sugar, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, and 1 tbsp. cran-strawberry juice cocktail. I tasted it, and it seemed a bit too strong. So, I filled up most of the rest of the 10 oz. cup I was using with water; and it still didn't seem quite right. Once I added the ice, it was better. But I think it was at its best about halfway through drinking it, as the ice began to melt. So, if I ever make this again, I'll use a little extra water a make a point to let it sit for a few minutes before I drink it.

My grandbabe and I made this together. I'm a mom & grandmom and I know that look...sweet, tender...and right at the perfect moment, too. It makes time stand still...for a little bit. And, I love that baby smell...the good one. Made for A/NZ#56 Recipe Tag.

I found Pink Lemonade once in Aldi's and wanted to make it at home. Originally worried about the amount of sugar in this recipe, but I stuck to it and it worked out. If felt like I was drinking a yummy lemon lolly. I put all the ingredients into the cocktail shaker and shook it for about 4 mins.. Yum.. Thanks for posting your recipe Lavender Lynn

I originally found this recipe at allrecipes and have made it several times. This lemonade is quite refreshing! I used a bottled lemon juice, (which I purchased from Aldi's) rather than using fresh lemon juice, and it tasted great in this lemonade. I also used a raspberry-cranberry juice, which I purchased from Aldi's. The amount of ingredients I used were... 1-cup of sugar, 4-1/2 cups of water, 1-cup of lemon juice, and 3/4 cup of cranberry juice. This will make exactly 56 ounces of the best tasting lemonade. Lynn, thank you for posting this recipe. It's definitely a keeper!

I was making frozen lemonade and came across your recipe. I was inspired so I added cranberry concentrate to my lemonade and it had a really good flavor and nice color. Another time when I have fresh lemons I'll give the full recipe a try. Thanks Lavender Lynn- Roxygirl

I really did not enjoy this. I found it way too sweet. Looks very pretty though ;-) Made and reviewed for Aus/Nz Swap 34. November '09

This is sooo refreshing. I used two lemons, which didn't quite give me the 1/2 cup, so I topped it with bottled lemon juice. I also used Splenda in place of the sugar. There wasn't anything I didn't love about this. Thanks Lavender! Made for the Auzzie/NZ Recipe Swap #31
